Great thread as usual...I like the idea of different satellites crashing down in different places of the world, that's brilliant. I still think with the Astronaut Man and other depictions of greys, I think there was some type of beings that were here too. Possibly a retrieval of the satellites?

The small band of elites do get valuable information on agriculture, metallurgy, mathematics, astronomy, the written word etc from the AI.

If you haven't already read them, you might find these interesting as well:
Atlantis: The Antedilluvian World, by Ignatius Donnelly
The Lost Continent of Mu, by Col. James Churchward
Both are very similar to your post in that both address the common symbols, linguistics, architecture, etc....

Ah, the good ol' Monolith Hypothesis.
Human advancement is a funny thing; it took thousands of years to domesticate animals but it took less than seventy years between the Wright bros flight and the moon landing.
How did early man learn know how to create fire or to cure and preserve meat? perhaps there were prehistoric Einsteins that had moments of genius which lead to the advancement of our species-but there is no way of telling for obvious reasons. But where did these Early Einsteins get their inspiration from?
Tens of billions of people have lived this planet and only a handful can claim that they have changed the world. One could argue that these geniuses are the result of intervention from a higher power.
On board this craft was a very advanced Alien AI. Seems far fetched? Sure, but whose to say for sure it wasn't possible? I mean, consider this, We with our present day limited tech are learning everyday of other planets that are out there and have by comparison rudimentary AI's and Satellite and Space probe tech already.
